Patric Verrone gets happy feet at Paramount

Happyfeet If you happened to drive past the Bronson gate at Paramount Pictures Monday morning, you would have witnessed the singular sight of WGA West president Patric Verrone performing the Strike Dance with several other picketers.

Verrone, who spent the day visiting every WGA picket line in Los Angeles, delivered a pep talk to the Paramount picketers, praising their resolve and adding, “We need you to keep on doing this.”

Then, after warning, “Who has less rhythym than me?”, Verrone and his picket sign spent a minute bopping up and down to a cheerful hip-hop number before he and WGA West board member Nancy Del Los Santos moved on to Raleigh Studios.

Asked where Tuesday’s negotiations will be held, he said no one had yet informed him of the location.
